Kru-El is the second-cousin of Kal-El. Kru-El was born on Krypton, but when he was at adult or late teen age, he committed a terrible crime, and Kru-El was sentenced to the Phantom Zone, where he resided.


Kru-El only appeared in one of the Super Friends puzzles, which was the artwork of José Luis García-López for the Super Powers Collection line of products, and he didn't appear in the actual series.


Kru-El made his first appearance in Action Comics # 297 (February 1963).[2]
